The Fragrant Tea Olive is an attractive evergreen shrub or small tree that is grown for the amazing and beautiful fragrance of its flowers. The white flowers are in clusters on the stems and this plant flowers in fall and often again in spring. Just one bush will fill the garden with the scent of peaches, apricots, gardenia and jasmine. This plant will grow into a shrub perhaps 15 feet tall in time, and needs no care or trimming to develop a dense crown in a neat, rounded or vase-shaped form. It will grow in the warmer parts of zone 7 and of course everywhere warmer, so it can be grown throughout much of the country.

  • Fills the garden with wonderful perfume in fall and spring
  • Attractive compact evergreen shrub
  • Grows well in shade as well as in sun
  • Easily grown in all the warmer parts of the country
  • Pest-free and easily grown in any garden

Plant your Fragrant Tea Olive in any kind of soil that is not too wet and in a sunny or shaded location. It has no pests or diseases and will grow steadily into a lovely evergreen shrub that will fill your garden with the most amazing perfume every fall. This plant deserves much wider planting, so grow on in your garden – discover how much you are missing.
